Full description Simply run install-log immediately after dSimply run install-log immediately after doing a make install, and it'll update its database of which files on your system belong to which packages. The lists it produces are handy for simple package management, including uninstallation and upgrading. The resultant plain text files are stored in /var/install-logs With few exceptions, they are simply lists of /path/filename delimited by newlines and therefore can be fed through xargs in order to, for instance, uninstall a package. The exceptions come from running install-log more than once for a single package after, for instance, installing a newer version on top of the old one. The resultant list will once again contain all the files updated recently, but it will also specially list every file not updated that was previously listed. It also lists everything that has been deleted since the last time install-log ran.leted since the last time install-log ran.
